When the sun is shining and the air is warm, you can spot coaches Steven and Gaby, a 2013 CrossFit Games Winner, leading energetic CrossFit classes at local beaches and parks. On weekdays, classes take place in an intimate studio packed with weights and functional equipment. Using kettlebells, medicine balls, and body weight as their tools, the coaches guide students through creative workouts designed to build muscle, speed, and endurance. They frequently draw exercises from gymnastics, metabolic conditioning, and weightlifting to create their diverse workouts. The staff strives to build a supportive community in the gym, providing students with constant motivation and graciously accepting even the ugliest of hand-knit gym socks as gifts.
Certified trainers Charley and Nat aren't fans of the typical big-box gym experience. They have their reasons: gyms are crowded, people don't wipe down machines after they're done, and the actual results of workouts can vary wildly. Another, more compelling reason is that they've simply found something better. It's called CrossFit, and it works.
Inspired by CrossFit's focus on functional strength, Charley and Nat opened CrossFit Navigate and began turning others on to the workouts. In each punishing session, they combine exercises such as squats, rope climbs, and tractor tosses to work out every major muscle group. They scale these exercises to challenge virtually any fitness level, from beginner to expert.
At CrossFit Hardcore Central, it’s pretty routine to see athletes lifting weights overhead one minute and then doing dips on gymnastics bars the next. But “routine” is a four-letter word at this gym, considering that the Workouts of the Day (WODs) change every day to keep muscles and their owners guessing. Based on CrossFit’s principle of varied, functional fitness, exercises never repeat workouts. Sessions may include weightlifting, running, rowing, gymnastics, plyometrics, and body-weight movements such as pushups, chin-ups, and squats. CrossFit Hardcore Central's 6800 sq. ft. facility also has an air-conditioned, unsupervised lounge for kids and showers on site.
With nearly 150 classes offered weekly at three locations, Busy Body Fitness Center has workouts for dancers, boxers, and yogis alike. The packed calendar also dabbles in popular fitness acronyms, like P90X and TRX, which develop participants' overall strength and endurance. Those who enjoy their routines with a little rhythm can drop by for Zumba, Dance Jam, or Drums Alive, whereas high-powered cardio work is the theme of spinning and kickboxing classes.
The atmosphere of group classes is informed by communal support. This spirit of encouragement is also echoed in one-on-one guidance from personal trainers. In addition to a typical fitness background of coaching clients and mining medicine balls from the depths of the earth, each trainer has a minimum of 10 years of physical-therapy experience. That ensures they can both help clients find the most beneficial exercises and teach them how to properly execute those workouts.
The team at Inception Exclusive Athletic Studio treats taking care of one’s body as a lifestyle. They believe that working out and eating healthy “is a 24/7 job” with no “stopping or starting . . . only doing.” To that end, they help patrons achieve this lifestyle through group classes that incorporate RealRyder stationary bicycles, Vertimax sports-training drills, and yoga-and-dance techniques. Small classes of up to 10 enable instructors to tailor workouts to each participant’s needs, and professional equipment, such as kettlebells and TRX bands, give exercisers an opportunity to heighten their workouts.
